The Prudential Center sent out this tweet earlier.

MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT TOMORROW! An epic global sporting event is coming to #TheRock. We'll share soon. You’re not going to believe it! Guesses?

Could it be the all star game? 

 

My bad. Just realized I should of put this in The Rock section.

Maybe this is the April 13 Global Hockey Legends for Sandy Relief event that Deb and Dano were talking about in between periods tonight.

I bet to them it is since there's Hall of Famers billed. Would not shock me one bit for that to be the "epic event"

And 'worldwide' considering it's a lot of Russian hockey players too lol.

 

Was kinda hoping it'd be the All-Star game, even though I don't normally care for it but you generally only get one chance in a lifetime to go :P

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

I feel like something NCAA basketball related makes the most sense. I don't know about the finals (aren't they usually in stadiums these days? I don't really know, don't watch it), but maybe regional finals?

 

Or maybe something Super Bowl related? I know they've already got media day, is there anything else huge going on around Super Bowl time?

 

The All Star Game would be cool, but next year's an Olympics year, and the year after that I imagine they still owe to Columbus.

The NCAA basketball sites for 2014 & 2015 were already announced, and we didn't make the cut (MSG & Consol Energy Center did). In fact, I believe our state was sworn off by the NCAA after we approved sports gambling.

Didn't the NCAA then said we are back on when the sports gambling was shot down by the courts?  I know the state is trying to appeal in the mean time.

Yes.   When the federal courts struck down NJ's challenge to the sport betting law, the NCAA took back it's ban on postseason tournaments being held in NJ but left open the possibility of reinstituting the ban should the state win on appeal. 

 

Not to get too high and mighty, but it is extremely hypocritical of the NCAA (and all professional sports leagues) to claim that sports betting is bad for college athletics when so much money is gambled illegally on things like the NCAA tournament, Super Bowl, etc.

The NCAA is all about the $$$$. They fuel the gambling fire, then pull bs like this. Hypocrites.

Yeah I don't get it. Why do they care? IT happens illegally. They put up the damned spreads in the papers so why pretend you aren't benifiting from it?
